What is the technique whereby a digital image is processed so that the columns and rows of the resulting product are aligned with north and east in a ground coordinate system?

Georeferencing

Georeferencing is also sometimes called what?

Ground registration

What is the process of removing the effects of tilt from an aerial photograph?

Rectification

What must happen first to compute the parameters of a two dimensional coordinate transformation which is the first step of Geo referencing an image?

A number of ground control points are selected which can be identified in the image and for which accurate ground coordinates are available

This first step in the process of georeferencing an image converts what?

It converts from ground coordinates x and y, to image coordinates X and Y.

Lowercase x and y are what type of coordinates?

Ground coordinates “from”

Uppercase X and Y are what type of coordinates?

Image coordinates “to”

What are the most often employed two dimensional coordinate transformations?

Conformal and affine

The process of Geo referencing an image involves two steps, step two is?

Filling an array, which is aligned with the ground coordinate system, with the appropriate digital numbers that quantify the brightness of the ground at the corresponding locations. This is known as resampling.

What’s the difference in the scan pattern of an oscillating mirror or rotating mirror?

An oscillating mirror has a zigzag pattern. A rotating mirror scans parallel lines

What are three kinds of lidar?

Airborne scanner terrestrial scanner bathymetric scanner

What are six applications of lidar?

Transmission line mapping, digital terrain model Contor maps cross-sections, water and sub water mapping, floodplain and drainage mapping, monitoring landfill volumes tree canopy and timber value, mobile street mapping

What is the word that means removing the effects of tilt in a photo?

Rectification

What is the intent of vertical photography?

The camera axis is vertical and unavoidable aircraft tilts which cause the camera axis to be tilted are generally under 1° and seldom over 3°

What is exterior orientation?

It is the relationship between image and object space

What is the collinearity condition?

The model expresses that the image, lens, and object point lie on a straight line

What are the six parameters of exterior orientation that quantify the spatial position and angular orientation of a photograph?

Spatial position of the photo is defined by the 3-D coordinates of the exposure station in the ground coordinate system X_{L}, Y_{L}, Z_{L } Angular orientation of the photo is defined by the three angles tilt, swing, azimuth or omega, Phi, kappa

In the auxiliary tilted photo coordinate system the Y prime axis coincides with what?

The principal line

In the auxiliary tilted photo coordinate system what is defined first?

Y prime And it coincides with the principal line

In the formula for the scale of a tilted photograph what is T and Y prime?

T is the tilt and Y prime is the coordinate of the point in the auxiliary system

In the auxiliary tilted photo coordinate system the letter N stands for what and the letter O stands for what?

N stands for nadir and O is the principal point on a tilted photo

Omega, Phi, and Kappa uniquely define the angular relationships between what?

Tilted coordinate system and the ground coordinate system

Omega is what?

Counterclockwise rotation about the X axis

Phi is what?

Counter clockwise rotation about the once rotated Y axis

Kappa is what?

Counterclockwise rotation about the twice rotated z-axis

In the Omega, Phi, Kappa system, capital XYZ is what and lowercase xyz is what?

Capital XYZ is ground coordinate system lowercase xyz is tilted photo image coordinate system

What does the letter L represent in the omega phi Kappa system?

L is the origin, the exposure station

What is rectification?

The process of creating equivalent vertical photographs from tilted photos

Space resection by collinearity?

Calculate six parameters of exterior orientation, three angular attitude and three camera position of a photograph

Resampling essentially re-samples amounts to determine what?

The DN value for a fractional row and column location

What re-sampling method is the fastest?

Nearest neighbor

How many surrounding pixels are used in bilinear Interpolation?

4 surrounding pixels

How many surrounding pixels are used in bicubic interpolation?

16 surrounding pixels

What is the most common viewing system for stereo scopic plotting?

Alternating LCD shutter display
